In order for PyMdown Extensions to work, there are a couple of prerequisites.
|Python Markdown 2.6.0+||Yes||Python Markdown must be installed as it is the Markdown parser that is being used.|
Installation is easy with pip:
pip install pymdown-extensions
If you want to manually install it, run
python setup.py build and
python setup.py install. You should be able to access the extensions in Python Markdown under the namespace
If you would like to modify the code, you can install it via:
pip install --editable .. This method will allow you to instantly see your changes without reinstalling. If you want to do this in a virtual machine, you can.
